Apprenticeships are work based learning programmes designed to enhance an individual’s level of competency by developing their practical skills, knowledge and behaviours. Apprenticeships are ideal for upskilling existing employees or are a way to bring fresh talent into an organisation.
Courses start at GCSE level or equivalent up to degree level and apprentices work for at least 30 hours a week alongside training for their qualification. This can take place either at work or in college, usually for one day per week and courses take between 1-5 years depending on the level and sector, and the Apprentice’s prior skills.
As part of their employment, Apprentices must:
- Work with experienced staff
- Learn job-specific skills
- Complete 20% off-the-job-training
- Be paid at least the national minimum wage for Apprentices.
